North Korea: Seth Rogen Film Is State-Sponsored Terrorism

When it comes to the latest Seth Rogen comedy, North Korea is not laughing. Now it’s appealed to the UN to condemn this act of “terrorism”, reports the Telegraph:

North Korea has lodged a formal protest at the United Nations against a Hollywood comedy about an assassination bid on leader Kim Jong-Un and asked Washington to block the film’s release.

“The Interview” stars Seth Rogen and James Franco as two tabloid television journalists who land an interview with Kim in Pyongyang and are then tasked by the CIA with killing him.

In a letter addressed to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, and seen on Wednesday, North Korea’s UN envoy Ja Song-Nam says allowing the film to be made and seen constitutes “the most undisguised sponsoring of terrorism as well as a war action.”

Rogen joins a proud Hollywood tradition of mocking tyrants that stretches from Charlie Chaplin’s The Dictator to Team America: World Police, which ridiculed Kim Jong-Un’s father, Kim Jong-Il.

“The Devil,” St. Thomas More wrote, “the proud spirit, cannot endure to be mocked.” The same is true of thugs and dictators, it seems. In which spirit, we bring you the trailer for The Interview:

    By that criteria, there are a lot of terrorists in the Chattering Classes. There was at least one Bush assassination movie, lots of photoshopped images of Bush in crosshairs,

    More recently, lots of rape fantasy on social media against Kendall Jones et al.

    Despite their self conceits, the Progressives have some vile people in their crowd. And they don’t call them out on their behavior.
